Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Highly conserved subunit of the mitochondrial pyruvate carrier (MPC); expressed during growth on fermentable carbon sources, and heterodimerizes with Mpc1p to form the fermentative isoform of MPC; MPC localizes to the mitochondrial inner membrane and mediates pyruvate uptake; MPC2 paralog, MPC3, heterodimerizes with Mpc1p to form the respiratory MPC isoform [Source:SGD;Acc:S000001205]


Chromosome VIII: 423,072-423,461 forward strand.
